Applied Oral Physiology is intended to provide undergraduate and graduate dental students with greater knowledge of oral physiology. It is aimed at bridging the gap between the basic sciences and clinical dentistry, in light of the changing patterns of dental practice. This book is organized into 23 chapters. The topics for this second edition were those that have a direct bearing upon oral diagnosis and treatment planning. The references, quoted at the end of each chapter, were also selected to provide a basis for future in-depth topic evaluation rather than as a comprehensive literature compendium. The coverage of the chapters includes blood supply of the oral tissue, anxiety and stress associated with dental treatment and mechanisms of tooth eruption. This book will be of interest to undergraduate and graduate dental students and practitioners.
